Have you ever worked with a sports psychologist? If so, how did it help you?
I’ve been working with Carly Anderson for 3 years now. She has helped me to improve in so many ways. My mental strength and resilience have improved dramatically. I’ve learned to see difficult situations as challenges to overcome rather than disappointments.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
“Have fun.” It seems silly but when you take a sport as seriously as we do, having fun can seem difficult as times. But having fun, playing loose is much easier than being stressed.
What’s a big obstacle that you’ve overcome in your life?
Graduating nursing school while being a competitive curler!
What is your biggest fear when competing?
That I’ll look back at my curling career and wish I would’ve worked harder. This thought pushes me to work as hard as possible every day.
